Default cutting question

I've been bulking for a while now, and I planned on going to June but I haven't made any noticeable size gains in awhile and my gut's starting to show. the question is, should I start cutting early or wait it out?

and I'm sorry if this is the wrong section for this.

If you could start adding mass again, that would negate the need to start cutting, right? Post your diet and routine.

This is proving, once more, what I said in the other thread. "Bulking and cutting" is largely an excuse to change goals when something isn't working.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

my goals have not changed, but being stuck at an impasse I figured trying something different is better than continuing something that isnt working.

I'll post my routine and stuff later, I'm at work and typing on my phone.

If you go for hypertrophy gains, there would be no need for bulking.

I don't mean your long term goals have canged. I take it you have the same nebulous goas as everyone else...to be big and cut .

But to make long term goals a reality you have to set short term goals. Usually with other things, setting short terms goals is about making small changes to realize a new milestone. But with bodybuilding it become constantly changing directions. Someone tell me how this makes sense?

But I think you should look at progression in the gym instead of trying to monitor progress by asthetic changes OTHER than of course, not letting the bodyfat get out of control, etc.
